6:01am
off with anne makovec over at at&t park where the security sweeps i guess have already begun, right, anne. >> reporter: they are about to. i'm here along lot waterfront promenade in front of mccovey cove. we have to get out of the area because security sweeps are about to begin. they have been preparing the field for some time. they have it covered up so all the rain we're seeing this morning just sprinkles right now won't ruin the field for tonight's game which starts at 5:07 p.m. over the past 24 hours, crews have been sprucing up willie mays plaza and inside the giants dugout store fans are going wild for anything orange and black. local businesses are also gearing up to serve the hundreds of people expected to come to the area today and for game 2, as well. as for getting inside of the park, we have been monitoring some of the ticket selling websites. the average price for a ticket for games one and two is $700. three hundred dollars to $400
6:02am
for standing room only and you have to beware of the counterfeit tickets. >> as we go round by round more of them surface and you can't get into the turnstiles. so you don't really want to buy a ticket from someone you don't know. >> one fan was posting a game for a million dollars for reserve seats. >> reporter: at&t has a relationship with the website stubhub so ticket buyers there have protection at the box office. if you are not a huge sports fan, giants fever is still all over fan. you can see orange lights and decorations, the fairmont hotel transformed inside and out with giants pride everywhere you look. back here live at at&t park, you can watch the game for free. they will rotate people who line up and i'm guessing people will start lining up within in the next few hours at the park. it's a decent view of the field
6:03am
for what you're paying, nothing. i'm anne makovec. let's check in with cate caugiran who has more on transportation for the game. >> reporter: as anne said, there will be people lining up hours before the game. they will be coming in. so we are expecting a lot of crowds along with the hype and excitement and city leaders say in order to enjoy your day, they have a plan in place for you to get around. now, we can expect to see thousands of giants and tigers fans early this morning. first pitch isn't until 5:07 but free game activities start at 1:30. there will be plenty of ways to get to and from the city today. vallejo baylink ferry will have a ferry for each game of the series this week. mta is scheduling eight additional baseball shuttles to the ballpark starting about three hours before the game. bart will be running longer trains and additional event trains. also have extra staff on hand to help customers navigate bart. and mayor lee says they have been working overtime to make sure that they are ready.
6:04am
>> we're having to go about our work in a very time constrained way to make sure that everyone who comes here whether it's to our airport or to muni and public transportation all are taken care of. >> now, if you are planning to take any of these objections to get to at&t park transit leaders are encouraging you to buy your tickets ahead of time. each form of transit is offering prepaid fares and they say it's best to plan ahead. i know the embarcadero station where we're at right now is going to offer those roundtrip tickets starting at 2:00 so if you can have a break around lunchtime just after lunchtime you might want to stop in. plan ahead and save massive lines that you will see today if you are heading to or from the park. live by the embarcadero, cate caugiran, cbs 5. giants fans may have to get creative if they want to get into tonight's game. ticket prices are through the roof. and if you don't have the cash you better have another plan. >> here's some ideas. how about eating a cockroach? cashing in your kids' college fund? fans telling the "san francisco chronicle" they are willing to

of gates this morning. right now it's up by 21%. not such good news for netflix. the company in its earnings report disclosed it's projecting new subscribers this year between 4.7 and 5.4 million. earlier this year they projected 7 million new subscribers. and as a result, netflix stock is falling backwards by about 12% although they have done well on expansion plans of late. apple stock fell over 3% yesterday when it debuted the ipa mini because of the pricing at $329 for the entry level 16 gig wi-fi-only version. that's $129 more than competing sized tablets from google and amazon. but apple is rebounding this morning along with the market after a rough day yesterday. apple up over 1%. dow up 18 after dropping 243 yesterday. nasdaq is up by 10. and s&p moving higher by 2 points. back to you guys. >> thank you, jason brooks with

three days?! >> yeah. >> why didn't you call 911 an hour after you were stuck? >> well, why get excited, you know? >> just a chill guy. >> he was on vacation, you know? >> hanging out in his truck. >> enjoying the snow. a placer county sheriff's sergeant drove him to colfax to meet a friend who then drove ed to his second home in bay point. >> he had a couple of energy drinks to help him. giants fans are going to the san francisco zoo to visit a pretty cute good luck charm for the team. >> how ironic is this. it's a monkey born last week with an orange head. the zoo says it was born right before the giants rallied to win their play-off series against cincinnati and now they are calling it the rally monkey. and they are of course having a contest to name it. posey and scutaro are the leading names. one is the mvp for the season and one north nlcs. >> just can't get enough of it. these ears, you want to grab

here at willie mays plaza. we have seen a lot of vehicles drive past, people are honking their horns. the excitement is beginning. you can see the tv crew for a national network setting up for the broadcast. let's go to the other side of the park. we shot this video on the mccovey cove side. the infield covered up to keep it dry in advance of tonight's game first pitch at 5:07. crews have been preparing the park for its world series extravaganza since monday night and fans have been buying anything labeled giants. the dugout store and beyond all decked out for tonight. if you are looking for tickets, stubhub is a decent bet because that website has a partnership with at&t park so that gives you some protection. about $300 to $400 for standing room only right now. here's an insider tip if you want to watch the game for free. go to the waterfront promenade on the other side of the park and watch three innings at a time depending on how long the line is. i'm expecting people to start shopping up there sometime this morning. live at at&t park, anne
